Since 1997, BQ Basements & Concrete has been your local expert in basement and crawl space waterproofing, foundation repair, and concrete lifting services. As your neighborhood foundation experts, we care about the health and safety of your home. We want you to be prepared when winter weather begins to melt away.

This winter, we have seen nor’easters, snow emergencies, ice storms, and extremely cold temperatures. Over the next few weeks, the temperatures will begin to rise as the Spring season approaches. Unfortunately, melting snow and ice can be a detriment to your home and other structures.

How does snow melt affect a foundation?

Large piles of snow and ice turn into excess moisture that will saturate the soil around your home. Water can seep into your home through any space it finds. Cracks in the wall, the point where the wall meets the floor, and windows are all vulnerable places for water to enter the home.

The increased moisture in the soil can also apply pressure to the foundation walls of your home. This can result in the formation of new cracks or can increase the severity of existing cracks. Over time the hydrostatic pressure could cause the walls to bow inward.

What can you do?

Check your gutters to ensure they are clear and guiding water away from your home. If you have an existing waterproofing system, check your discharge line. Frozen or blocked discharge lines will bring that runoff directly back into your home.

If you are noticing any moisture or cracking in your foundation walls, call the experts right away. These types of issues only get worse over time. BQ Basements and Concrete will assess your property and create a custom permanent solution for your home.
